There are also upper and lower front porches that provide relaxing Lowcountry breezes by day and great views of the evening sky by night. The backyard is equally impressive and enclosed by a wood-stained privacy fence that creates a barrier from unwanted wildlife as well as elevates the privacy and safety for pets and children. Everything needed to have a Lowcountry backyard experience is already in place including a large, screened porch and a patio with a cabana style shelter for an outdoor kitchen/bar making the area great for hosting outdoor dinners and/or parties.

The sprawling grassy lawn without trees means no raking and minimal yard work allowing you more time to enjoy the space rather than maintaining it.

Other neighborhood amenities to enjoy are the community pool and play park. According to residents this is a friendly and active community of all ages. The neighborhood is conveniently located near many popular island restaurants and cafes, golf courses, marinas and boat landings, other tidal creeks for kayaking, and beaches.
